My review of Freefall by Kristen Heitzmann

Wow! Freefall left me speechless by the time I finished the story. At first I thought, "I love Kristen Heitzmann. I've read all of her historicals and they were awesome. This'll probably be good, but not as good as her past novels." WRONG! The suspense was incredible. The plot intricate. The setting exotic (nothing like spending time on the beach and not getting a sunburn. I think I even learned how to surf without hitting a single wave.) The romance also sizzled. Of course, those who know me know I love the edgier stuff (in other words, the passion and realism of romantic tension) and this baby is packed with it! The perpetrators and thugs were believeable and unlikeble--as they should be. I felt the heroine's fear, her confusion, her passion. Boy, that was a wild ride! I liked how the author occasionally inserted another person's POV to give you that person's perspective. Sweet. Oh, and the faith element was so smoothly done, I almost forgot to mention it. The spiritual lives and growth of the characters flowed flawlessly within the text, but did so with impact. Overall, I'd have to say that this is the best romantic suspense novel I've EVER read. I mean EVER! Too bad the rest of the world has to wait until Nov. 28th to get their own copy. I read a galley so I had the privilege of getting a sneak peek. Looking back, I can't believe I lost interest halfway through the book. I realize now it was sheer exhaustion from the conference that made me set the book aside. Not the book itself. I give Freefall ten stars! Hehehehe. Freefall is published by Bethany House and will be released Nov. 28, 2006. (Just in time for Christmas!)

Oh. Thanks to your post I'm putting this book on the radar. To be honest, I had read the review somewhere else and it didn't appeal. But you made it sound good.
